If You are interested there is a YouTube™ show re: reincarnation and WWII The incarnate's name is James Leninger. The kid is probably 20 or so by now, from Louisiana. There is also some Buddhism in what You type...
EDIT: How funny is that? | didn't look at Your link and then | just looked at it, that is it! The fuller story is at YouTube™edit on 09/03/2013 by LewisStulePhD because: (no reason given)
I've always entertained that, if there is an afterlife as the Christians explain it, the body rots, the soul goes to its reward, and the consciousness and personality goes into someone else. I love the idea that enemies can be reborn as someone close. It tells us that people themselves are not our enemies, it's how we see them and what they do in their current lifetime.

My brother has a birthmark on his neck and I remember my Mother telling me about how it could be a scar from a previous lifetime.
Awesome read! As if this isn't proof of reincarnation!
Maybe the fact that we are light beings inside temporary physical bodies would be much more well known if those in power didn't try every means possible to make people believe otherwise. I'm suprised they haven't fabricated another mental illness to try and explain this, such as "false past life memory syndrome".
Dr. Ian Stevenson has some books on this subject you guys might find interesting. He was a psychologist who became so fascinated with this topic he totally refocused his work on it. In other countries which have reincarnation as a belief system, and where often the people are poor comparatively and do not have easy transportation, and where there are often very serious class-social issues, some of the accounts are literally mind boggling. Like taking a small child to a city where he's never been and he not only tells you of everything you pass but tells you what it used to be, who owned it back when it was a watch shop or whatever (from decades prior, verified correct). Or the kid born into a family of a lower class he finds disgusting, sadly. Ian's stuff is awesome and he did very specific research on them.
It was reincarnation which actually forced a crowbar into my medical-model skeptical mind, which gradually led to me radically changing my belief systems (and experiences).
I was involved in hypnosis for a long time, and most PLR's (past life regressions) you can toss in the "doctor, 'my friend' has this problem" projective category.
But sometimes, some of them... I just couldn't. Some, there was just something different about, and for me it was very much a "gut-sense" intuitive thing, more than anything objective. Usually those sessions were horribly boring from the outside, but very clearly had profound psychological impacts on the subjects.
